  • You never know what you are going to get. It's o.k., it's normal to be nervous. You do your best to guide them in the right direction and then you have to let go and let life happen.

  • True true. Treat your child with love and respect, and that's the kind of child you will raise. Try to control and dominate her, she will resent you. Keep communication open, especially LISTEN to her. Try to understand WHY she does what she does, rather than be pissed if she annoys you. Look into different parenting approaches. I personally advocate Attachment Parenting. you obviously care a great deal, so I'm sure she will be a credit to you and a joy.

  • I just my 1st and only baby girl who is now 2. She was COMPLETELY unexpected, but very much welcome, after it took approx 3 months, 4 ultra sounds later to sink into my thick head I was 100% prego! I was told I wouldn't have kids cause I had endometriosis so bad. So when i got pregnant, the same thoughts went thru my head. Especially given I didn't have the best of role models growing up. But my dd is growing up like a weed, she is safe, content, well adjusted 2 yr old. The 1st few months I didn't think I was gonna make it! Finding this website is a blessing for me, I just wish I knew this site existed back then!! Anyway good luck, and don't let the nerves and the normal panic of new parent syndrome get the best of u and u can't enjoy your precious baby girl. Besides, baby clothes shopping is sooo fun! Little girls have the cutest clothes compared to little boys!! Or at least I think so!

  • Chances are there will be times that she is defiant, doesn't want to do her homework, and wants to do things she can't, and have things her friends get. Those things won't make her a bad kid, just a human one. My daughter is 12 now. We've gone through all that. But we've also seen her work hard, offer to help just to be kind, and accept no as an answer calmly and rationally.
    The trick is to remember that she is a person, and prone to the same mistakes and weaknesses as the rest of us, Especially as she grows up and logic is still forming. Just set a good example and focus on the values that are most important to your family, she should turn out fine despite the road occasionally being rocky.

  • It doesn't matter what you do, at some point kids are going to do what they're going to do. There is no way to predict what she's going to be like right now. It depends on environment, personality, intelligence, and many other factors that you cannot predict or control. Don't worry so much.

  • Ha! Ha! you are pretty nervous. Hope for the best that once your baby becomes a teenager, he/she knows what is what and act accordingly....
